Week 15 NFL Betting Predictions

There are just three weeks left in the NFL regular season and as the push for the playoffs comes down to the wire, betting can become more difficult. Luckily, we’re here to help with our Week 15 NFL predictions! 

Remember that like always, betting sites in New Jersey and every other state where wagering is legal offer tons of betting markets for every single NFL game on the schedule each week. Whether you’re into moneylines, spreads, totals, parlays, teasers, props or anything else…these sites have you covered. 

Below, we’ll preview a couple of the biggest games coming up this week and make our picks. Plus, we’ll take some alternate lines and build a parlay for those who may want to put multiple games into the same wager. Let’s get into our Week 15 NFL betting picks. 

Chiefs vs. Saints Predictions | Week 15 NFL Picks

This matchup is shaping up to be perhaps the most highly anticipated game of the week, even more so now that Drew Brees is scheduled to make his return after missing several weeks. 

We’d be remiss if we didn’t note that Kansas City hasn’t covered a spread in well over a month, even if they continue to win games. But we’d also like to mention that with Brees activated, the spread didn’t budge from Chiefs -3. So what’s the solution here?

It may seem like a square pick because the public is all over them, but we’re sticking with the Chiefs here. Most of the spreads have been inflated by several points over the past few weeks, and it’s led to them not being able to cover them. But at just -3 (-108), this is a number that Mahoms & Co. can handle against a team that just let Jalen Hurts have his way. 

Even if Brees returns with a bang, I’m not sure New Orleans can keep pace with this offense, and the Chiefs still have a bye to secure. While this is at a field goal or less, take Andy Reid on the road. 

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs -3 (-110)

Browns vs. Giants Picks | Week 15 SNF Predictions

So the Browns’ defense really stunk in Week 14 in the 47-42 loss to the Ravens. The good news is that its offense was also really good in that game, proving it can probably put up points on anyone. The Giants have a decent defense, so how will this go on Sunday night?

Looking ahead, this seemed like a great spot for the Giants to either come out with an upset win or at least cover the number. But with the injury to Daniel Jones, trusting in Big Blue feels a bit tougher. Granted, the last game Colt McCoy played was an improbable and thrilling road win over Seattle. But can lightning really strike twice? 

We’re going with no, and that means taking the Browns at -6.5 (-105) while the line is still under a touchdown. Not only is McCoy playing, but OC Jason Garrett will not be in attendance, leaving former failed Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens to call the plays. 

Backup QB and a backup coordinator? No, thank you. A desperate Cleveland team should find a way to run away a little bit in the second half. If not, we could be in for another thriller. 

Pick: Cleveland Browns -6.5 (-105)

Week 15 NFL Teaser/Alternate Lines Parlay (+148 at DraftKings)

Teasers and parlays are the most popular exotic bet types out there, and both can be an excellent way to modify betting lines and still make a profit. 

Teasers allow bettors to alter the spreads and totals by 6, 6.5, or 7 points while alternate lines offer the chance to pick out whichever spread or total you want. Nearly all betting sites allow for these lines to be combined into one bet, which would be an alternate line parlay. 

We’ve concocted a wager with alternate lines that comes out to +148 at DraftKings. It’s by new means a huge payout but it’s a bet we feel comfortable with. 

Indianapolis Colts -2.5 (Originally -7.5): The Colts are hot, and the Texans are not. Betting on the NFL isn’t really that simple, but we think it is when it comes to this game. The Colts need to keep winning to possibly win the AFC south, and Houston is just playing out the string. It would take a major calamity for Indy to lose this game, and we think they win by three.

Patriots-Dolphins Under 48 (Originally O/U 41.5): The Patriots were embarrassed against the Rams last week and if there’s one thing Bill Belichick doesn’t like (there are many), it’s getting embarrassed. This defense will be ready to play, and nobody takes advantage of young, inexperienced QBs like Belichick does. The Pats also want to run the ball and play to a slow pace, so taking some extra points and going under feels safe. 

Los Angeles Rams -9.5 (Originally -17.5): The Rams are tied for first in the NFC West and battling for a division title while the Jets are going 0-16. Following a 21-point win over New England, what will they do to New York at home? Seattle just beat the Jets by 37 points and none of us would be surprised if the Rams did, too. Taking this under 10 just feels like a lock.
